Polis Calls on Congress to End Marijuana Prohibition


Speaking alongside industry advocates, U.S. Rep. Jared Polis (D-CO) called Wednesday for Congress to end the prohibition on marijuana, stressing the need to reduce drug violence while hailing the medical cannabis market's capacity for growing the economy.

Polis statement on finalization of Methane and Waste Prevention Rule
Today, Rep. Jared Polis (D-Colo.) released the following statement regarding U.S. Secretary of the Interior Sally Jewell’s finalization of the Methane and Waste Prevention Rule. The final rule will update a 30-year old regulation that for decades has permitted the wasteful release of natural gas into the atmosphere from oil and gas operations on public and Indian lands. The guidance updates regulations for natural gas venting, flaring, and leaks. Additionally, the rule ensures operators are accountable to the taxpayers for royalties on flared gas.  “Scientists and climate experts have known for decades that methane emissions have a negative and devastating impact on our climate,” Polis said. “For years I’ve found it troubling that we regulate these leaking and harmful pollutants with a 30-year old regulation. The Methane and Waste Prevention Rule is a commonsense step to prevent the release of these harmful emissions on public lands at an accelerated rate. I commend U.S

Jared Polis (D-Colo.) led a bi-partisan group of 95 Members of Congress, alongside Rep. Chris Stewart (R-Utah), urging House leadership to secure full funding for the Payments in Lieu of Taxes (PILT) Program. “I am fortunate to serve a district that is home to acres and acres of majestic public lands,” said Polis.  “We have to protect these public lands and compensate the communities that help maintain them.  Fully funding programs, like PILT, will simultaneously safeguard the wilderness and allow our communities to thrive.” Nearly 1,900 counties across 49 states receive PILT funding to compensate for lost tax revenue due to the large amounts of federal lands in their counties, which are un-taxable according to federal law. A breakdown of the payments by state and county can be found here. In a letter sent to House leadership, Polis and Stewart wrote,
